The Keeper of Lost Causes

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jussi Adler-Olsen

Narrated By: Erik Davies

Publisher: Penguin Audio

Date: August 2011

Duration: 15 hours 37 minutes


Get to know the detective in charge of Copenhagen's coldest cases in the first electrifying Department Q novel from New York Times bestselling author Jussi Adler-Olsen.

Carl Mørck used to be one of Denmark’s best homicide detectives. Then a hail of bullets destroyed the lives of two fellow cops, and Carl—who didn’t draw his weapon—blames himself. So a promotion is the last thing he expects. But Department Q is a department of one, and Carl’s got only a stack of cold cases for company. His colleagues snicker, but Carl may have the last laugh, because one file keeps nagging at him: a liberal politician vanished five years earlier and is presumed dead. But she isn’t dead...yet.

Darkly humorous, propulsive, and atmospheric, The Keeper of Lost Causes introduces American readers to the mega-bestselling series fast becoming an international sensation.

    An excellent story and exciting until the end. The narrator's accent especially on women voices does need some work.

  • Lisa Predovich

    I felt like the characters were a bit under-developed and the story was slow to move along. I had a hard time following some dialogue between characters because the narrator's voice was similar for all male character voices.

  • Joshua Cochin

    The book is a solid thriller in the scandinavian mold. Not as good as Nesbo, but well crafted and engaging. The narrator reads well and has a good voice, but for some benighted reason thinks he needs to render dialog in a faux-Danish accent. Very distracting.

    I had read the series, "The girl with the Dragon tattoo" and really enjoyed the books tremendously! I was looking for something to listen to that was along the same lines. I was pleasantly surprised, I love this book . I have already recommended it to several of my friends. I'm excited to start listening to the next book in the series!
